RCVS Certificate Advanced Veterinary Practice

The RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP) is a flexible, modular approach to achieving veterinary postgraduate qualifications.  Courses from within the fully taught MVetSci Advanced Clinical Practice may be used as credit towards the RCVS Certificate in Cattle, Sheep or Production Animal Practice, allowing students to exit with two qualifications. Some courses in small animal medicine may also be used towards the RCVS Certificate with details available on enquiry.
